35 weeks – c section date

As I am sitting here writing this, we have exactly 11 days until our c-section date. 15/02/2021 I am so excited to meet them, but I have to be honest I feel sick to my stomach everytime I think about that c-section. I am so scared. I’ve never had any kind of surgery before, apartContinue reading “35 weeks – c section date”

A little scare…

So, we had a growth scan at 32 weeks which showed baby boy was starting to slow down on the weight gain a little. They weren’t too concerned at this stage. They asked me about their movements. I said that they are usually active but they do have quiet days sometimes. My midwife told meContinue reading “A little scare…”

4D scan

I forgot to mention, we had our 4D scan at 25 weeks! Top picture is baby girl, bottom picture is baby boy. It was so surreal to see these little babies on the screen, when they’re actually inside my tummy! I can’t get over how amazing and incredible and blessed I feel to be carrying,Continue reading “4D scan”

20 week scan + movements!

I was so nervous for this scan! I’ve always seen the 20 week scan as the scariest one.

The scan tookContinue reading “20 week scan + movements!”

Pregnancy symptoms during first trimester

I haven’t actuallyContinue reading “Pregnancy symptoms during first trimester”

First trimester screening results

I haven’t really been thinking much about this to be honest! But when the letter came through I felt really nervous! Will rang me whilst I was driving home from work and said I had a letter and do I want him to open it. I was like nooooooo that’ll be the screening results letContinue reading “First trimester screening results”

12 WEEK SCAN

My god, we’re finally having our 12 week scan at 12+2 – August 26th. Our scan was at 08.10am at our local hospital. It was a really long scan too! They had to measure the skin fold at the back of their necks to check the risk of them having downs syndrome. Well the scanContinue reading “12 WEEK SCAN”

9 week scan…

Look how big they are at 9+5!!! I was so relieved, Will was confident everything was fine but I was just scared that they would scan me and find nothing because of my lack of symptoms. But there they are! Both growing exactly how they should be with heart rates of 170 and 171! WeContinue reading “9 week scan…”
